Today was a free fishing day in Washington so JP practiced his fly-fishing techniques and had some luck so he was happy. We looked over the town of Forks, which by the way is TWILIGHT Country. There are all kinds of Twilight references and cute sayings all around town. There’e even a Twilight Festival in September. I read all the Twilight Books but only watched one of the movies so I don’t have what it takes to be a true Twilight fan.
If I was though, there is no shortage of material. At “Forever Twilight” in Forks they have the screen worn costumes and actual props as well as backdrop for photo ops. There is a Twilight Tour bus, menu items (the Bella Burger) the Hotel has a reader board that says “Edward Cullen never slept here” and just about everywhere has a Twilight reference.
Kinda fun and funny, especially since I’m pretty sure the movies weren’t actually filmed here in Forks. In Stephanie Meyers Twilight Series of books though – it was all about Forks and the surrounding area. The trucks below are Bella’s truck from the book and Bella’s truck from the movie.
